What am I in for?
I would ABSOLUTELY have....:
1) Date stamps on tires read
2) Oil samples checked on the engine, generator, & tranny
3) Radiator samples checked
4) Installed roof = VERY VAGUE.... could be roof seal, could be rubber roof.... its VERY ODD for a dealer to install a complete new roof on a 19 year old coach unless something is very VERY wrong (that is like a $4k + job maybe more)
Also as some will tell you, low miles on a 19 year old oil burner is not necessarily good and possilby bad. Diesel engine like to run not sit.
Approach with caution and do homework and you will be great!
